“The Samsung M1 delivers hours of pure entertainment – anytime, anywhere,” said Michael Rayfield, general manager of NVIDIA’s mobile business. “We worked with Samsung to ensure consumers get incredible HD, a unique UI and excellent battery life.”

The Tegra processor, a computer-on-a-chip the size of a thumbnail, has eight individual processors designed to deliver astounding HD performance to mobile computing devices. This includes an HD video processor, an audio processor, a graphics processor, and two ARM cores, which work together or separately to minimise power consumption.

The Samsung M1 uses the following NVIDIA Tegra technology to deliver rich multimedia features:

  • An HD video processor for smooth, vivid 720p HD video and movie playback
  • A graphics processor for an intuitive, responsive user interface and excellent 2D/3D graphics for wireless mobile games, applications and photos
  • An audio processor for advanced audio playback and recording
  • NVIDIA® nPower™ technology to optimise overall system performance and power

Based on NVIDIA’s decade and a half of graphics leadership, the Tegra processor has been engineered over the past five years to bring high performance and low-power capabilities to the next generation of mobile computing devices, such as portable media players, smartphones, smartbooks and tablets.

Tegra processor-based consumer devices are delivering the rich visual experiences that today’s consumers crave, with HD video, intuitive 3D user interfaces and great games. There are 50 active Tegra processor-based design projects in the works today.
